The House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress is ready to consider more sanctions against Russia. Paul Ryan, the speaker of the Congress's lower chamber said that while taking to the press as quoted by Reuters.
Answering the question if the Congress was ready to implement new sanctions against the Russian Federation, Ryan admitted he would be 'more than happy' to consider these sanctions.
Ryan added he was sure about Russia's interference with the U.S. presidential race in 2016.
As is known, in April, the U.S. government imposed new sanctions against Russian oligarchs and companies; it was the response to the Kremlin's meddling with the presidential election in the States.
Earlier, the White House spokesman Sarah Sanders said at a briefing that the United States did not recognize the annexation of Crimea. 'We do not recognize Russia’s attempt to annex Crimea. We agree to disagree with Russia on that front. And our Crimea sanctions against Russia will remain in place until Russia returns the peninsula to Ukraine,' Sanders said.
